Idiot headline = idiot article.

This is what happens when a candidate (or his supporters) have nothing to run on, so they have to use slime/slander against their competition.

What is extremely interesting to me is that this is what liberals/progressives do......and not a generally accepted tactic by Republicans.

Every time I see this type unsubstantiated crap.....or the stuff about Cruz mistresses, Cruz hookers and Rubio is gay, it just makes me believe that Trump is a Democrat running in the Republican primary as a spoiler.

Trump supporters.........you are DESTROYING Trump's chances to get backing from other candidates supporters should he get the nomination.

If that is your goal.......then keep it up.

If you truly want Trump as President......quit sabotaging him.

Agreed.

The best thing that can come from this election now is that maybe these tabloid asinine blog posts will dry up and go away...

This is one of the fake news sites.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3418444/posts

I can tell just by the name.

I knew it before the confirmation in the Washington Examiner report.

Note who posts them.
Nope, founder is Dan Abrams:

You “just knew it” “can just tell by the name”

Well you are stating misinformation...not true.

Well, I actually read the article that was part of thread you posted in your zeal to discredit...Law Newz is not mentioned in article. Sooo there is NO CONFIRMATION.

Then I did this activity Freepers SHOULD do called research...

The site founder, Dan Abrams is a well known analyst for major media networks...like ABC. I recognized the name immediately because he is/was co-anchor on Nightline.

This site was founded by Dan Abrams:
http://lawnewz.com/dan-abrams/
http://www.dan-abrams.com/

Dan is the founder of the Abrams Media Network, which includes Mediaite.com, TheMarySue.com, LawNewz.com, RunwayRiot.com & TheBraiser.com. He co-founded GossipCop.com & the NYC restaurant, White Street and created and sold Sportsgrid.com. He is also a best-selling author & the Chief Legal Affairs Anchor for ABC News. Previously, Dan served as the General Manager of MSNBC where he defined the network as “The Place for Politics”. During his tenure, the network saw its most significant ratings and profit gains to date. He also hosted “The Abrams Report”, a nightly legal affairs program, and the acclaimed “Verdict with Dan Abrams”. Additionally, and most recently, he was the co-anchor of “Nightline” on ABC News.

Frankly I think Dan Abrams website may have more Creds than an unsourced staff article written by National Examiner.

Did it ever occur to you that perhaps Abrams sees an opportunity for a new website during an election year?

Very sloppy...no research.

True, all one has to do is clear the rubble and see the truth staring you in the face.

I guess with the entire GOPe money brokers covering your behind, cruz can do anything at all.

And here I was led to believe we were fighting against the uniparty - silly me.

Trying to promote thoughtful discussion, not just knee-jerk reaction, here. Sarcasm was designed for that. There is so much gorilla dust in the air that it is hard to see the deceptions.

Regarding alleged unlawful election support frrom PAC ads, it dawned on me that Cruz, arguably like Hillary, seems to be basing his campaign partly on the adage that "it is easier to get forgiveness than permission.”

He possibly applied this adage when his campaign claimed that Carson had quit the race, Cruz later telling Carson, “sorry.”

And Trump may have violated it as well by colluding with Fox, the biggest Trump Super PAC out there.

Ninety percent of FOX coverage of Trump is negative. Hannity does give him an easy interview in stark contrast to all the other comments on the Five or Bill 0'Reilly Have you watched the Kelly File?

As if the Cruzer's didn't start it.

Trump wants to secure the borders, enforce the law, end anchor babies, end sanctuary cities, build a wall, deport them all, secure the borders, secure the nation, including sending the refugees back!
No one is better at border security, national security than Trump.

Sounds pretty damn conservative to me.

Want to talk about cutting taxes, cutting spending, cutting regulations, cutting government, cutting cronyism, cutting corruption, growing the economy, putting our people back to work, making America great again?

Trump does. And he sounds pretty damn conservative to me.

Want to defend God, family, guns, country? Want to build the greatest military ever so no one dares mess with us?

Trump does. And he sounds pretty damn conservative to me.

Want to build a coalition including conservatives, capitalists, blue collar workers, veterans, gun owners, religious people, minorities, freedom-loving Americans of every stripe?

Trump does. And he's doing it. And that sounds pretty damn conservative to me!

Reagan Revolution meet the Trump Revolution.

No excuses for the tone. None needed.

You may remember that there were many Romney supporters here last election.

Maybe not Satan, but Naps is already classing him with Hitler, Pol Pot and Mao Zedung.

See posts 78 and 85: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3418170/posts.

All three are listed in the Top Ten Most Evil Dictators of All Time and between them were responsible for the deaths of 96.7 million deaths.

Thanks for posting Jim Robinson's words, because that is what I'm talking about. Pushing Trump's "strength" in policy issues helps convince people he can do the job......which should be the objective for people supporting Trump.

Sleaze may sell newspapers/magazines, but it's the kiss of death for Republican politicians.

Noting that I will vote for Cruz but prefer to vote for Trump, please consider the following.

In stark contrast to Trump earning his bragging rights for being a master deal-maker, this issue with Cruz allegedly violating an election law tells me that Cruz is not necessarily a good negotiator.

More specifically, instead of working with people to get what he wants, Cruz seems to be employing the adage, “it’s easier to get forgiveness than permission.”

In fact, he possibly applied this adage when his campaign claimed that Carson had quit the race, Cruz later telling Carson “sorry.”

First on CNN: Ted Cruz apologizes to Ben Carson

So far in the presidential race, it is easier to be a Trump apologist than it is to be a Cruz apologist imo.
